cynicism

The Truth has died after a long illness.
"South Park" is not anti-change. It’s anti-doctrine.
Few concepts are more poorly understood or more abused than skepticism. The best example of this abuse is to attribute the moniker of "climate change skeptic" to those who ignore the overwhelming data concerning global warming.
What exactly is the substance of the spirit of our faith? Why do we cling to something as irrational as faith in the face of the rational, visceral reality of so much suffering, corruption, and violence?
Cynicism distracts me from my feelings, makes empathy impossible, helping others embarrassing, listening difficult. Nothing really inspires and touches your heart, nothing wakes your childlike curiosity.
You can't wholeheartedly love anything or anyone without accepting the good with the bad. You've gotta love the fights, breakups, tears, and loneliness just as much as you love the candle lit dinners, chance meetings, and roses.
